'Every Israeli a legitimate target'For those who have been hiding in a cave all day, thus far unidentified assailants burned down a home in the Arab village of Duma next to Nablus (Shchem) during the night. A baby died and his parents and brother were injured. I am going to post the reactions I posted on Twitter this morning, and then an update.
TT @dandayan (frmr head of Yesha Council) Must tell truth: Almost happened in past in Huwara & in Bat Ayin taxi 1/2 https://t.co/yjCaTEnLuE— IsraelMatzav (@IsraelMatzav) July 31, 2015
TT @dandayan Was inevitable. We knew. We feared it. But we didn't fight it as we know how. 2/2 Comment to follow https://t.co/yjCaTEnLuE— IsraelMatzav (@IsraelMatzav) July 31, 2015
Disgraceful. Jews don't behave this way. Those who do have stooped to other side's level. This is murder and worse https://t.co/yjCaTEnLuE— IsraelMatzav (@IsraelMatzav) July 31, 2015
I hope and pray that a Jew didn't do this... but I fear otherwise. https://t.co/XO0HSdo38X— IsraelMatzav (@IsraelMatzav) July 31, 2015
Important difference: in #Israel there's been immediate wall-2-wall unequivocal condemnation. No public squares named. No celebration. #Duma— Arsen Ostrovsky (@Ostrov_A) July 31, 2015

every Israeli is a legitimate target for a terror attack.A horrific act of terror against Palestinians overnight in #Duma. #IDF operating to locate the terrorists responsible— Libby Weiss (@Libby_weiss) July 31, 2015
Hamas said Friday that every Israeli is now a legitimate target following the deadly terror attack in the village of Duma in which a Palestinian toddler was killed, Israel Radio reported. In an official message to the public, Hamas also called for a "day of rage" to protest the deadly terror attack and "in order to protect al-Aksa mosque."As noted above, the difference between Israel and the 'Palestinians' is that the condemnation of this attack is across the board. Of course, it could still turn out that the attack was not carried out by Jews. But it should be condemned in any case.
Palestinian toddler Ali Dawabsha was killed and three members of his family injured after a molotov cocktail was thrown at their home by suspected far-right extremists, in the village of Duma, in the northern area of the West Bank, outside the city of Nablus.
Israeli and Palestinian security forces in Jerusalem and the West Bank were placed on high alert following the attack.
There have been terror incidents in Judea and Samaria all afternoon, culminating in an Israeli driver coming under fire - and responding - near Kochav HaShachar, which is just a few minutes from the Hizme crossing (the crossing between Jerusalem and Samaria).
A suspected Palestinian terrorist carried out a drive-by shooting attack on an Israeli vehicle on Friday in the Binyamin region of the West Bank near Kochav Hashahar. The Israeli driver in the vehicle told the army he fired back at the gunman. There were no injuries in the incident. The army found three bullet holes in the Israeli vehicle that came under fire.There's enough terrorism in this country without vigilantism. Whoever murdered that child should be sent to jail for a long, long time.
A couple of hours later, Palestinian rioters clashed with IDF soldiers in Hebron. The incident occurred near the al-Rasoul Mosque, when Palestinians on a march hurled rocks and burning tires at security forces in the area.
Soldiers responded with riot dispersal means, and fired Roger low intensity rounds at the legs of a suspect, an army spokeswoman said. He sustained a light injury, the spokeswoman added.
